Over its long history, Buick often rebelled against its position within Alfred P. Sloans carefully stratified GM marque hierarchy, with Buicks aspirations best expressed by the new-for-1959 Electra 225. The 225 was derived from the 225-inch overall length, the longest of all GM cars during that period. At first glance, not only was it slightly longer than that years Cadillac, its 401 cubic inch V8 engine was larger in displacement. Additionally, the upstart Buick model also offered luxury approaching, and sometimes surpassing, that of its more senior GM brethren.

The dramatically restyled 1959 models were replaced by all-new models for 1960, with the flagship Electra now riding atop a Buick-only K-member frame. The canted headlights of 1959 were now laid flat and parallel to the bumper, complementing the wider, longer and lower overall styling theme of the early 1960s. Accenting the clean bodywork, a pair of broad trim panels cloaked the lower body of the Electra 225, neatly integrating the front and rear bumpers with the body of the car a very elegant look.

The top of the line Electra 225 Convertible was luxuriously equipped as is the car presented here. It includes a leather interior, power windows, a power-operated top, Super Deluxe wheel covers, an outside rear view mirror and the Safety Group. Standard equipment on all premium Buicks also included a padded dashboard, power steering, power brakes, two-speed wipers and dual exhaust outlets. It even has a speedometer that adjusted for the drivers height.
